Alter Bridge Announce Tour with In Flames and Metal Church
Here’s one that will either go very right, or very wrong: Alter Bridge just announced a headline tour with In Flames and Metal Church.
Potential to go right: Alter Bridge are way more metal than most people give them credit for (especially guitarist Mark Tremonti, who is an avowed metalhead), so their fans may be receptive to the tour’s openers. In Flames, with their modern day accessibility, and Metal Church, with their old-school thrash, could be the exact type of metal that AB fans will appreciate.
Potential to go wrong: hard rock fans can get weird about actual metal, especially when it has growled vocals (which In Flames still utilize, even as they’ve lightened up over the years).
I’m probably over-thinking it, though, as usual: I’m sure it’ll be dandy, and all three bands will gain new fans from the experiment. Ticket information is available here.
